Providing a rugby experience for boys and girls across Sydney
Sydney Junior Rugby Union (SJRU) is the governing body for all junior club rugby union in Sydney and is responsible for organising regular competition Rugby matches for over 60 Clubs and more than 12,000 players aged from Under 6 to Under 18.
The metropolitan area of Sydney is divided into 12 Districts with each of the 60 Clubs affiliated to a District. While players from U6 to U9 play in Minis Competitions organised by their District, SJRU centrally organises and manages the competition for U10 through to opens.
SJRU aims to maximise the participation of rugby across all age groups and develop the individual skills, fitness and team work of all players in accordance with their physical maturity and understanding of the game.
The modified rules of rugby are applied at age-specific levels across the entire competition and provide an integrated and consistent approach to the development of players. The modified laws are focused around the player, making the game safer and ensuring each player receives the greatest possible participation and enjoyment from playing the game of rugby.
